#SixSunday - He Must See You


Happy Sunday Sixers! Thanks for stopping by! I always appreciate the comments and encouragement. I look forward to hopping around to other blogs and reading what other talented authors have shared!

I'm continuing with my YA Paranormal book, ONCE AND FOR ALL, the sequel to ONCE AGAIN, which is now available (links to the right), and was reviewed this week at Night Owl Reviews! ONCE AND FOR ALL follows Phoebe Campbell and Todd Miller as they encounter their own reincarnation mystery. Last week Phoebe and Todd had their first discussion about the art project on which they'd been assigned to work together, which consisted of Phoebe assuming Todd expected her to do all the work and Todd telling her he wanted to do his part. (Oh, and for those who commented and wondered last week... yes, Todd DID program his number into her phone!) 

Today, we get a look inside Phoebe's subconscious. This snippet is from a dream she experiences the night following last week's scene. It's not the first time she's "seen" the woman in the long dress, but it's the first time the woman has spoken. And it's no accident that it happens after the first time she and Todd really "talk" to each other!

I saw the outline of the woman, but not her features. Her face was hidden by the shadows of the trees that surrounded her. The emerald green of her dress shimmered in the darkness and the soft yellow waves of her hair moved with the wind.

I didn't know her, and yet she was not a stranger.

"He must see you." Her voice lilted toward me, as she spoke in a language I'd never heard, but somehow understood.

  8. That's the way it is in dreams, isn't it? Familiar yet unknown. You did a great job of conveying the fuzziness of her dream.
